Dorchester Collection is introducing #DCmoments City Guides, a digital amenity created through collaboration between the hotels in the portfolio and select Instagram content creators for the best travel and lifestyle posts on social media.
#DCmoments City Guides is designed to point guests where they should go to explore and engage with their surroundings. Available immediately to guests and accessible via complimentary download from the website, the new #DCmoments City Guides for London, Paris, Milan, Rome and Los Angeles provides tips from the content creators and an interactive map of the locations. The guides are optimized to be consulted in the Apple Book application for iPhones and iPads.
To compile its #DCmoments City Guides, Dorchester Collection has collaborated with Pathport, an invitation-only collective of creative influencers.
The cities, the influencers and samples of what guests will discover include:
